Worldwide Challenge: Formulating Drugs for Children

Host: Bill Rutenberg, MD

Guest: Stephen P. Spielberg, MD, PhD

Medicines for malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDS are all available for children, but none are formulated specifically for the younger patient population. Recently, the World Health Organization generated an essential drug list for kids. How will they follow up on this effort? Dr. Stephen M. Spielberg, professor of pediatrics, pharmacology and toxicology at Dartmouth Medical School, and principal investigator for the Institute for Pediatric Innovation's Pediatric Pharmaceutical Reformulation Project, joins host Dr. Bill Rutenberg to discuss some of the challenges ahead: formulation, dosing, preservation, delivery and beyond.
